Just click on the word Chili (at the top of the page) - it's a link and will take you into the chili forum. You'll find all kinds of recipes and ideas.

Get creative. Use fresh ingredients. At so many chili cook offs I have been to, the chilis I liked were made with fresh peppers etc. So many rely on powdered spices etc.

You can get as little or as much heat out of the chili as you want my varying the peppers you use. Many of the chili peppers are very mild, some are very hot. I never use something along the lines of an Habenero due to the extreme heat. As a general rule the larger the pepper the milder the heat..

Use at least as much pepper by volume as you do onion. Use either cubed up pieces of meat or Shreaded meat. It makes a much better chili than ground meats. Personally I start with Sirloin and cut into 1/2 to 3/4" cubes.

Use dice tomatoes in the sauce, get good tomato juice to thin the chili to consistency. Are you allowed beans?? Do you want beans?? Some cook offs allow them, many don't ....

Don't be affraid of the chili powder, and Louisiana hot sauce. They provide flavors you need in the chili..

The biggest thing--just step in and start cooking. With the basic ingredients above you can't go wrong...
